Florida-based hospital system Halifax Hospital Medical Center agreed to pay $85M to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act and Stark Law by executing contracts with six medical oncologists that provided an incentive bonus that improperly included the value of prescription drugs and tests that the oncologists ordered and Halifax billed to Medicare.  The allegations were first raised in a qui tam lawsuit filed by Halifax Hospital employee Elin Baklid-Kunz under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act.  She will receive a whistleblower award of $20.8 million.  DOJ
